Brutal loss. Worst of the year. Moribund C's are listless.
i'm also upset, Mike
These guys should feel embarrassed. We have our superstar giving up his body against the Knicks in November and the young guys can't get up to play.
They need some damn size in there. It's really becoming obvious. This small ball lineup only works if they're shooting well, and their shooting is abysmal.
Brad has no right to be mad there. You can't stop a 7'1 guy with no one over 6'9" on the floor.
No argument here.
They’re going to get boo’d off the court at the end of this. I’m not a huge fan of booing but this effort is so bad I’m ok with it.
It feels like that was a long time ago. There were certainly games early in the year where it seemed like the Cs were missing a statistically improbable number of open looks and they coincided with their opponents making an unsustainable percentage of tough shots... but even that was only the first 7-8 games of the year...
It's not about playing Baynes serious minutes, it's about not putting Al at the 5 to get abused on one end of the court, and rendered useless on the other end. He admits he doesn't even like playing the 5.
There's also the whole "Brad has tried everything else, and it hasn't fucking worked, so maybe try something new" angle that I'd be ok with at this point.
Totally--my point was just that rather than overreacting to misses, I enjoy them when they're part of good process. Tonight (and most of the past couple weeks) have not been good process. Even the Raptors game, to a large degree, was Kyrie simply out-talenting the other team.
If Gordo can't make a wide open 7 footer.....
even the Warriors, with the best shooters on the planet, don't play this much small ball
I'd be more ok playing Baynes if he didn't shoot so much. The first game he started this year he attempted like the first three FGA. These guys shouldn't all have green lights all the time.
... take him back behind the barn?
He was in between passing and shooting and just threw up that ugly ball. I wish he’d just take it hard to the rim but he’s clearly not ready.
Senior for threeeeeee!
This team is so bad at tipping balls into the basket, it's kind of funny.
we just not defending that dude? or is he kemba-lite? and therefore unguardable?
the defense is ghostly
I was reliably informed that the only problem this team had was shots not going in.
And that brings the season count of "Al switches onto the opposing guard and gets torched" to about 5,000.
Every trip down the floor it happens.
Late-ass whistle on a clean-ass steal.
Dude just elbowed the shit out of MaMo on that drive, no call again.
maybe Danny should look to add a super quick, defense first PG and deal Rozier for him?
It can not be just chance that he celts constantly are torched by jump shooting guards in4thbq?
Hayward makes a 3!!!
GORDO for THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Biggest make of Hayward’s Celtic career so far.
Hayward is a ray of light regardless of the outcome
Wow he actually took a shot in rhythm.
Stop. Score. Stop. Score. OT.
Why can't they play with this kind of energy for 4 quarters? That's what I want to know. Obviously, they're capable of it.
I hate this Jekyll and Hyde shit. I get so confused as to which sequences I should be extrapolating as representing the rest of the season.
That’s a missed goaltend?
How is that goal tend not reviewable? Why have review?
Kind-ass roll, then a missed goaltend on the other end.
Man how does that shit go in?
How is that not reviewable?
That was 5.
That was a long ass five count.
I think that would drop like 5% of the time.
I've said it once before, but it bears repeating: These refs are ass.
Refs walk all over Brad teams. He's too nice!
Rozier's disaster minute to end the 3rd Quarter probably the difference.
